Ecological Benefits

Benefits of Onsite Rainwater Infiltration

Localized Climate & Social Ecology

  • Keeping water onsite increases vegetation
  • Increase in local vegetation humidifies and cools the air in the summer months by way of evapo-transpiration from the surrounding soil and vegetation.
  • Shade provided by vegetation reduces in house temperatures and outside soil temperatures.
  • Cooler temperatures reduce the need for air cooling devices thus reducing energy demand and use.
  • Carbon dioxide is absorbed from the atmosphere because of increased vegetative growth.
  • The rate of climate change is reduced due to less greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
